This light green stem plant from the American tropics has very dense, fine leaves, it reminds somewhat of moss shoots. Therefore it has the vernacular name “Bog moss” although it does not belong to the mosses. Relatively intensive light, soft water and a good nutrient supply are recommendable. Mayaca fluviatilis is susceptible to iron deficiency that is expressed by whiteish shoots.
- If received invitro, please remove all gel from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
- CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
- Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
